So would I need to rework the above if I only put 31s on it?

No, if all you want to do is run 31's is have them mounted. When you get home turn the wheel full lock to both sides and look to see if anything is touching. If it is or close, all you have to do is add a couple washers to the steering stops. The tires will fit fine with no added stress as rubicons came with 31's stock.
If you do start disconnecting the front sway bar, then look into bump stop extensions. Other than that, put them on and have fun.

I like the Goodyear Durtrac's.. Although a tire place by me mentioned Dynastorm 31's I can get for $150 each. Any other suggestions?
If its anything to you... the Duratrac's always give the impression of a larger tire. Maybe the lugs make them look bigger I don't know. I run them on my Titan and on my YJ. Here they are in 31" form. Also, I paid $171 a tire from Tirerack (local pickup) plus got a $100 rebate from Treadlightly

Thanks a million, KKiowaTJ! Much appreciated! If I ever make it to your neck of the woods, I owe beers.
